The session, Break on through to the other side: tips and tricks for successful funding and financing, was given to a packed tepee at the event last Tuesday.
Tina addressed the state of seed funding and how it has changed over the years. From Classic seed rounds to what the firm calls, Super Sized (Seed plus) rounds, Tina walked through the trends and what entrepreneurs should look for when they seek funding.
Here’s the takeaway from our packed tepee at 4YFN.
Speak to a lawyer.
You can’t be everything to everyone, do what you do best.
Surround yourself with a team who’s good at what they do.
Make sure founder agreements are in line with how you see the company growing.
Button down IP ownership.
Put strong terms and conditions and privacy policies in place from the start.
Read the fine print in any investor agreements, but listen to your lawyer.
